Save Me – Corrupted Hearts #4 by Tiffany Snow

Computer genius China Mack may be the former head of Vigilance, the government’s clandestine spy program, but she can still be knocked off balance. And two back-to-back personal blows have thrown her into a tailspin.

While her relationship with tech billionaire Jackson Cooper is on the rocks, China is testing the boundaries of what she feels for man-of-mystery Clark Slattery. But when China learns that her mother’s death sixteen years ago wasn’t an accident, she can’t rest until she knows the truth. And China’s own father, an elusive ex–CIA agent, might have been the killer. To avenge her mother’s death, she needs help, and both Jackson and Clark step up to the plate. But when her investigation is linked to a decades-old international plot to hack the New York Stock Exchange, putting both of the men she loves in danger, China must make an impossible decision to keep them safe.

As the three of them are plunged into a far-reaching conspiracy, China’s notions of love and trust are turned upside down. For China, this final case couldn’t be more personal—or more dangerous.



Oh WOW! What an ending to this thrilling ride we have been on with China, Jackson and Clark.  Tiffany Snow has done it again and brought to life characters that will stay with me for a very long time.

Action and intrigue dominate this series with revenge and betrayal hot on their heels, and emotions run high throughout this final book in the saga of China Mack.  Jackson and Clark are back to help China in her hunt for vengeance against her mother’s death but the more time they spend together the more China’s feelings are sent into turmoil. What is a girl to do when she has two extremely sexy men vying for her affections?

I was very much Team Clark through the majority of this series, I do think that was in part due to the fact that his character is very similar to my absolute favourite book boyfriend – Kade Dennon, and as such I have a soft spot for him.  As this story progresses it becomes harder to determine who is best for China but I do think that the right choice has been made in the end.

Word of warning….tissues will be required.  I cried! I’m not afraid to admit it.  This book made me cry! Several times in fact.  There are some extreme heartbreaking moments for China but also some very happy ones as well.

Thank you Tiffany Snow for bring some wonderful characters to life and letting us share in the world you have created.  Looking forward to seeing what comes next.

The Undercover Billionaire – Tate Brothers #3 by Jackie Ashenden

The Tate Brothers were raised to protect what is theirs…

Navy SEAL Wolf Tate is on a mission of vengeance. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to infiltrate the lair of his arms-dealing enemy—and rescue the mother he never knew. To do this, he’ll need more than his father’s fortunes or his brothers-in-arms. He must find a way to kidnap his enemy’s daughter for leverage. There’s just one problem: She is also one of Wolf’s closest friends—and the only woman he’s ever loved…

For years, Olivia de Santis has been waiting for Wolf to take her in his arms and make her dreams come true. But she never imagined that he’d sneak into her bedroom one night…and take her as his hostage. Olivia knows she should resist him—and stay loyal to her own family. But how can she deny the burning justice of Wolf’s mission, and the blazing desire in his eyes—even if giving into the heat of the moment can put her in grave danger?



If you enjoy a fast paced and exciting read with action, romance, loyalty and betrayal then you should like this story.  Wolf and Olivia are star-crossed lovers who don’t actually  realise that they love each other.  From feuding families Wolf Tate and Olivia de Santis become friends but when Olivia discovers the lies that hide beneath that friendship she has to question her own feelings.  Wolf has to reconsider his feelings as well when the truth becomes known and realisation hits him upside the head like an explosion.

Wolf’s character is portrayed as the original hard man – all muscle and no brains.  He is loyal to a fault and wants desperately to believe the lies that he has been told.  The psychological damage that his father has dealt to him over the years left a deep crater in him, but who knows, maybe the love of a good woman can help fill that hole and show him that he is not as stupid as he thinks (there is still some doubt in my mind about this though!)

Olivia is the archetypal good girl through and through.  Again, she is loyal to fault and also like Wolf, the person who gets her loyalty does not deserve it.  These two really are Romeo and Juliet of the nowadays. I loved when Olivia finally stood up for herself and gave Wolf a piece of her mind, about time too.

This is a an action romance with some sex scenes but nothing to make you blush (too much!)

The third book in the Tate Brothers series.  Although I have not read the previous books I did not feel that this limited the enjoyment of this book and the other brothers do appear with a brief recap of their situations which helps bring the story along.  I will be reading the other books in this series at a later stage.

This is a Netgalley ARC Review

The Misters Series, Five,  and Mr & Mrs by J. A. Huss

Ten years ago the lives of five wealthy and respected college students was turned upside down by an accusation of rape. Dubbed the Misters of Brown, Mr Perfect, Mr Romantic, Mr Corporate, Mr Mysterious and Mr Match have managed to keep under the radar but now they are finding their pasts are coming back to haunt them.

Finding love was never in their futures but, as each Mister finds a woman, can he keep her from the danger that follows him.  Can coming back together to save their women (and their women saving them!) bring an end to their past and finally put their ghosts to rest.

Danger, mystery, lies and betrayal blend together with love, romance and friendship to make a compelling series that should not be missed.

Joining the Misters is Five, who appears frequently and plays a major role throughout the Mister series.

Finishing the series in a spectacular way is Mr & Mrs.  All the Misters are getting married. One island, six grooms, six brides, children, kittens and pigs, what could possibly go wrong?!


Fantastically brilliant from start to finish. All seven books read in 2 weeks proves that I could not put them down.  As soon as one was finished it was straight onto the next.  More of the plot and mystery is revealed with each book and although they are classed as a standalone…seriously, why would you only want to read to one?

To get the most out of this series they really should be read in order although I am undecided where I would put Five.  His book brings a lot of answers and although it is labelled 0.5 and is technically a prequel, I read him after Mr Match but before Mr & Mrs as his book brings a lot of answers that could potentially spoil elements of the Mister books.

The female characters are all perfectly matched to their Mister and the connection between each is….HOT!  Hot Kisses, Hot Sex, just HOT!

If you have never read this author before then I can highly recommend her.  She has lots of series and most seem to be connected.  I would suggest reading The complete Rook and Ronin series first (see blog post) as the Mister series does contain some of their children but in all honesty it is not essential. There is a very good chance that if you read this series first you will want to go back and find out what happened with the Flynn’s, the Shrike’s and the Aston’s anyway.

So much potential for future books…Can’t wait to see what comes next!

Thanks Julie for bringing us these wonderful characters.


Breaking Away Series Boxed Set -Breaking Away #1-3 by Meli Raine

Allie Boden’s life changed two years ago when her mother was killed. Having just turned eighteen, she longs for a life away from her controlling, drug dealing stepfather and the unpaid hours at his dive bar.

Chase Halloway has dreams. Unfortunately for him he is also the son of Galt Halloway, notorious president of the Atlas Motorcycle Club.  Galt has plans for Chase to take over the club and there is no leaving.

When Chase and Allie’s paths cross there is an undeniable attraction but being the son and stepdaughter of rival drug dealers prevents them from following their hearts. But when Allie is kidnapped and tortured, ready to be sold off to a drug lord, can she trust what she sees or will Chase save her before it is too late?


Lies, murder and mistrust all combine to make this a compelling series.  This boxset comprises of : Finding Allie, Chasing Allie & Keeping Allie.

This is the first romantic suspense series by Meli Raine – (aka Julia Kent) and is as well written and engaging as her other books.

Allie is a sweet girl who has had a tough life.  Being left in the care of her controlling stepfather, she saves every penny she can to escape his clutches, and although he has never cared for her he is oddly protective of keeping her innocence.  Chase is the tough bad-boy biker, but is he as bad as he appears?  There are definitely times throughout this book that I wanted to slap him, in fact Allie does at one point. I didn’t want to believe what I was reading and the emotions I felt on behalf of Allie shows the signs of a good author who can get under your skin with their characters.

There are some very romantic moments, and by this I mean hot, steamy intimate scenes.  There are also elements of  physical and emotional abuse. Although these are limited in their graphic descriptions, there are enough details after the events to imagine the pain and suffering caused to Allie.

With lies, secrets and surprises this series kept me gripped in the lives of the characters.  A must read for anyone who enjoys romantic suspense.


The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers -Lover’s Triangle #3 by Calista Fox

Insurance fraud investigator, Scarlet Drake, is tenacious when it comes to following the leads.  Her current assignment has her tracking down Michael Vanderberg in connection to an art theft on his family’s estate but when the pair final meet the chemistry is undeniable.  Eliminating Michael from her investigation sends her into the path of his stepbrother, Sam Reed.  Saving Scarlet from a snow bank sends sparks flying and when Scarlet finds out that the brothers have shared women in the past she is more than willing to join them.

With the investigation still in full flow, Scarlet struggles to protect her new relationship whilst still tracking the clues.  Will she be able to hold it all together or will the secrets become more than anyone can take?


I received this book as an ARC review and really enjoyed it.  The characters are interesting and the chemistry between all three is sizzling.  The story is well written and is full of twists and secrets.  Scarlet is a woman who has had a tumultuous past. From the time she lost her parents in a tragic accident she has kept her heart sealed so that she would never feel that sort of pain again. Michael is similar to Scarlet in the heart department, whereas Sam is still recovering from the loss of the woman he loved. It takes all three of them to overcome their fears of love but together they are strong.

This is the third book in the series and although I have not read the previous stories it did not detract from the enjoyment of this one.  The female characters from books 1 & 2 make an appearance in this one and I will definitely be reading these and probably more by this author in the future

This is a menagé a trois with MF and MFM sex scenes.

Double Dose by Katie Allen

Speech therapist Daphne Dahl lived an uncomplicated life, keeping herself to herself wherever possible, but all that changed when the attractive stranger kidnaps her.

Ari would do anything for his mute friend Benjy, even kidnapping. Bringing Daphne to their remote hideout in an effort to find out why he wont talk should have been simple enough, but the more time they spend together the more his feelings for her grow. He knows that Benjy also has feelings for this new woman in their lives.

Daphne knows she should be scared, should attempt to get away at every opportunity but something stops her.  Is it the growl that comes from Ari or the sparkle in Benjy’s eye, either way she knows that there is attraction for not just one but both of these men. When the reason for their confinement makes an unwelcome appearance, Daphne will do everything she can to protect her men.


Finding yourself in a remote log cabin with not one but two big, handsome men, who wouldn’t want to stay?  Ari and Benjy, along with three other men, escaped a testing lab where they were essentially lab rats given bionic powers.  Following the process Benjy stopped talking…enter Daphne. Daphne has always been a loner, since she advanced two year ahead at school. Finding out her fiancé didn’t really love her and left her after stealing all his clients money, she vowed never to get attached again.

The story is interesting although the bionic powers took some getting used too. I did feel that there could have been more made of the two different plot points, her fiancé and the lab people.  Everything just seemed to come to a rushed end.  I won’t deny though that the sex scenes are hot. If you enjoy a bit of menage then you will definitely like this.

This book is the fourth in this series which had all previously been published under another name.  This book can be enjoyed as a standalone and although we are introduced to the characters from the previous books it does not impact heavily on this story.

Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC

Find Me – Corrupted Hearts #3 by Tiffany Snow

Twenty-four year China Mack had her life organised and that was exactly how she liked it, until events that she couldn’t control took over.

Vigilance gets shut down in the wake of an assassination attempt on the President. Clark turns up out of the blue needing her help to clear him as prime suspect.  And Jackson proposes. China’s ordered life hangs in the balance.

When the investigation into the President’s shooting leads to a military assignment that Clark was involved in six years ago, China , Jackson and Clark find they have to work together to stop an unknown assailant before he tries again, but it is not only the President who is in the firing line.  Secrets are unearthed that will effect everyone involved.


Brilliant! I am a huge fan of Tiffany Snow and once again she has had me on the edge of my emotions with the third instalment in the Corrupted Hearts Series.

China Mack has a very emotional time of it and for someone who does not deal in emotions it is especially hard for her.  Just when she thinks everything is settling down Jackson proposes to her and Clark returns after a three month absence, which sends her feelings into overdrive and she struggles with how to deal with it all.  When all three of their lives are threatened they have to work together, which is easier said than done.

The suspense and action along with the emotional drama and romance is to the usual high standard of this author. The story is fantastic and there are secrets that are revealed throughout this book which will effect all the characters and how they view each other. China finds out more about herself and receives some much needed guidance from an unexpected source.

I’m still sticking by my decision from my review of “Break Me” – TeamClark.  Saying that, I do feel an attachment to Jackson. He has shown his love for China every step of the way in the best way he knows how, but there is a quote from Clark relating to puzzle pieces that I agree with (no spoilers) and I think he has it right. The characters are so well written that in my mind they become real and I want everyone to be happy.  Such a shame she has to choose.

Great to see some familiar names back again.  If you have never read the Kathleen Turner Series then I would highly recommend it. Although it is not essential for the enjoyment of this series, there are some characters who appear within in this story and it would help the reader to make more sense of who they are.

Thank you to Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to advance read this.

And an even bigger Thank You to Tiffany Snow for writing it.
